maybe the folks who burned the toronto police car can be hired to attack scott walker

Also from the "in case you missed it" files...
An Indiana deputy prosecutor and Republican activist resigned Thursday after the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism uncovered an email to Gov. Scott Walker in which he suggested a fake attack on the governor to discredit union protesters.

Carlos F. Lam submitted his resignation shortly before the Center published a story quoting his Feb. 19 email, which praised Walker for standing up to unions but went on to say that the chaos in Wisconsin presented “a good opportunity for what’s called a ‘false flag’ operation.”

“If you could employ an associate who pretends to be sympathetic to the unions’ cause to physically attack you (or even use a firearm against you), you could discredit the unions,” the email said.
...but when we suggest that violent "protesters" may be hired provocateurs, we're just paranoid.

That would be a weird job to have! I wonder how people get into that line of work?

Maybe they answer an ad on Craigslist...

Hey, they have to find these people somewhere.

More likely they're cutting a deal for a lighter sentence.
